In the country the professional parliament was created. In implementation of all these cases Heydar Aliyev always relied on the people and got its support.

Carrying out judicial reforms, creation of the Constitutional court and other important organizations played important role in promotion of democratization process in the country.

During the ten-year period of management of the independent Azerbaijan Republic Heydar Aliyev, having saved our country from threat and difficulties, removed it on the way of consecutive development. Within these years the mechanism of public administration was recreated, the regular army is created, large-scale political, legal, economic, social and cultural reforms are performed, dynamic development of national economy is provided, the new oil strategy representing great value for independent Azerbaijan is prepared and begun to be implemented. Finally in Azerbaijan the constitutional, democratic and secular state was created, serious steps in the direction of strengthening of civil society are taken.

The idea of azerbaydzhanstvo got into minds, the national unity and solidarity were provided.
